1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 20 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cambridge Wizard Student Guide The Kite Runner (Cambridge Wizard English Student Guides) (Paperback)
This book was not as good as I had anticpated it would be as there were a few errors (for example, characters' names and chapter number references.) This caused me to doubt the overall reliability of some of the notes.
